Sporogonic development of Plasmodium yoelii yoelii 17XNL was examined in 5 species of Anopheles mosquitoes; A. albimanus, A. dirus, A. freeborni, A. gambiae, and A. stephensi. The kinetics of ookinete formation differed among species. In A. freeborni, A. gambiae, and A. stephensi, mature ookinetes formed synchronously at 8 hr, then quickly subsided. In A. albimanus and A. dirus, ookinete formation was more protracted, and ookinete densities peaked from 12 to 24 hr. Losses in parasite abundance… CONTINUE READING
